This was my first time making vodka sauce, wow, so easy and delicious! I used my best bottle of vodka in the house, combined with the tomato paste, shallot and garlic, and it was incredible. This is definitely now one of my favorite cheat day recipes when I'm craving some carbs! So good.

I love this vodka sauce, it's perfect with noodles or spiraled zucchini. It's very rich and creamy, one of my favorite things about this recipe. If you like vodka sauce, or just a lover of pasta then you definitely need to check this one out.

Mouthwatering, rich and creamy penne vodka recipe. definitely a favorite. Next time I will probably add sun-dried tomatoes for added texture. It also tastes even better the next day. Perfect!

Perfect vodka sauce! Even though you only use two tablespoons vodka, you can definitely tell the difference, it's a distinct taste. I used top shelf vodka also.

Super indulgent and delicious, I just wish that it wouldn't use heavy cream! I've made this once and it's probably my favorite pasta recipe ever, but won't be making again any time soon because it's so heavy in fat.
